Why our members love NASPA.
I love NASPA because they are able to connect multiple state and national pharmacy organizations together. These connections allow us to advance practice so that pharmacy teams are able to take care of patients better.
I’ve experienced NASPA both as a state association exec and now as an affiliate that partners with them frequently on pharmacy compounding issues, and I just can’t say enough good things about the professionalism of the NASPA team, their openness to collaboration, and their passion for helping state pharmacy associations accomplish the important work they do for pharmacists and patients.
NASPA provides a unique and valuable opportunity for state pharmacy association executives to collaborate on challenges, investigate ideas, and share in each other’s successes. As we say in Texas, ‘Together Pharmacy Advances!
I love NASPA because it makes my job easier. NASPA staff understand the challenges of running a state pharmacy association and offer great networking opportunities and education to help me be successful.
NASPA connects me with other state pharmacy associations. I have received so much support from my peers about the operations of an association as well as how to handle tough issues.
Membership in NASPA is invaluable. It gives me immediate access to a brainstrust of pharmacy association executives who have an understanding of the day-to-day and longer term work I do; and can provide critical insight and lessons-learned when facing new opportunities and challenges in state pharmacy. NASPA staff has been an invaluable resource for providing key background and context for policy and practice issues that have aided in the passage of substantial pharmacy-related legislation in Maryland . In addition, NASPA serves as a bridge and sieve for me to get the best out of our engagement with national pharmacy associations.
NASPA is an excellent organization that provides state pharmacy associations a mechanism to network and learn from each other. The voice they provide for us on a national level is invaluable in representing the interests of our members.
The type of work that I have done over the past twenty-five years has necessitated frequent interactions with state pharmacy association executives, and our investment in a NASPA associate membership has helped to meet this need in a huge way.
